Re: The WJ Owner's Guide To Recommended Mods

How much wrap you need really depends on how much of the interior you want to do. Do you want to do just the trim pieces? Or the trim and dash bezels? If the latter, a 60" x 48" roll will be plenty.

Re: The WJ Owner's Guide To Recommended Mods

I got a silverwire CF trim kit for around the door switch panels, around the vents, etc. It's a good start and doesn't turn out bad at all. I go to a lot of high end car events and have gotten a lot of compliments and it ain't even finished yet. Eventually when I have time and money I'm going to finish things up with both silverwire and regular CF.
